There’s a bookstore in New Zealand called Whitcoulls. Every few years, they ask their patrons to list the top three books they’ve read that year. Then they compile a list of the top 100 favorite reads of their customers. It’s amazing how some books (cough Lord of the Rings cough) keep showing up:) The Whitcoull’s Challenge is to pick one of the lists, and read at least four books from it. The first four books you read have to be new to you – after that, your choices can be re-reads. I’ve read an awful lot on these lists so I’m going to have to search for new reads. However, they are there – just waiting for me to find them. And maybe when I’m finished, I’ll go find the actual store:)

Here are the lists from 1998, 2002, 2006, and 2008

    I’m glad you want to play along! I’m looking forward to seeing which books you choose 🙂
